"It’s simple math: we can burn 565 more gigatons of carbon dioxide and stay below 2°C of warming — anything more than that risks catastrophe for life on earth. The only problem? Fossil fuel corporations now have 2,795 gigatons in their reserves, five times the safe amount. And they’re planning to burn it all — unless we rise up to stop them." -- Bill McKibben

This November, Bill McKibben and 350.org are hitting the road to build the movement that will change the terrifying math of the climate crisis.

I just did the math for Bill McKibben.

2795 gigatons of CO2 are going to be burned.
7 billion people alive today are going to burn it during their 70-year lifespan
798571 pounds of CO2 will be burned per person over a 25550-day lifetime
31¼ pounds of CO2 burned per day, per person, per lifetime is what that works out to be

By McKibben says, "We can burn 565 more gigatons of carbon dioxide and stay below 2°C of warming." This five times less then the math above.

6¼ pounds of CO2 burned per day, per person, per lifetime is what the safe amount works out to be, staying below 2°C of warming.

What I want to know is then, how many grams of CO2 get burned in my bong each day? How many bong hits can I do per day and stay within my limits?

LMAO. Be green, and environmentally friendly by using a vaporizer! Gets the job done better, and easier on the lungs too :-)
